When the compliments start coming (and they will), don't forget to mention how much protection they provide, too.

Kiwa is one of several divine guardians of the ocean in the traditions of some of the Maori tribes of New Zealand. Costa's Kiwa Polarized Sunglasses were designed to protect you from the bright sun you'll find out on the ocean, on inland lakes and even on the beach. Featuring rounded lenses in durable, wrap-around, extra large-fit TR-90 nylon frames that are made with resin from the castor plant. This bio-based resin offers a 70% reduction in emissions over petroleum-based resin, helping to reduce the overall carbon footprint. Reflective glare and eye strain is minimized or eliminated altogether with their 100% polarized, scratch-resistant 580P polycarbonate lenses. Hydrolite nose and temple pads will keep them securely on your face. Although, if you want to be extra sure they don't end up in the drink, a neoprene retainer or leash (sold separately) is inexpensive insurance.
